AlmightySquid posted a topic in Off TopicGalaxy Quest 2 [WIP] Current version: 1.0.4 Galaxy Quest 2 is my second game, and my first you could say big project. I plan on finishing this game and making it fully playable (and enjoyable, if possible). The game is a 2D topdown space shooter, where you take control of a spaceship on his quest (no actual quests, just shoot shoot shoot) to rid the galaxy of evil comets and mean aliens! So far I've got the titlescreen menu, volume and difficulty control (actual difficulty not yet implemented), 3D-looking background, a scrollable map and a spaceship along with movement and 360° rotation using the mouse. So this is still a very early version of the game. I plan on releasing the source code for aspiring programmers to learn from, and I'll be sure to comment the code out and make it as OOP and understandable as possible. However, the source itself won't be available for download until the game is finished. Here are some videos to show what I've got so far: http-~~-//www.youtube.com/watch?v=WaZEVxPC5IE http-~~-//www.youtube.com/watch?v=8FFLU7gQjXs http-~~-//www.youtube.com/watch?v=VW6A4UqQ4RY If you like this and would like to follow the development of the game, consider subscribing to my YouTube channel as I'll be pushing out updates frequently (I'll try to), so you can see the progress. To-do list: - Add bullets/lazors to the game, which the player and enemy spaceships can shoot (with fancy sound effects included) - Add actual enemies with (sort of) smart AI (comets will still be stupid) - Make enemies earn you money, which you can spend at the shop for upgrades to your ship (tri-laser superbeam cannon of death anyone?) - Boss battles! - Scaled difficulty - Space squids (???) I'm also open for some good suggestions. Changelog: 1.0.4 - A lot of code cleanup and bugfixes (a day worth of work) - Volume (music and SFX) and difficulty control through the options menu - Multisampling (not configurable yet) 1.0.3 - Credits screen in the titlescreen menu - New sounds - A map around which you can move (3000x3000p) - Player is now centered on the screen, while the background moves - The background consists of 2 layers which move at different speeds, giving a 3D feel - Started work on a minimalistic HUD - Some code cleanup - Improvements to the way menu buttons work 1.0.2 - Player (in the future enemy as well) rotation using trigonometry based on mouse position - Ingame menu (accessed by pressing the escape key, exited the same way) 1.0.1 - First release!
This is the first game I actually finished, it's made in C++ and the Allegro 5 library. It's a small and simple 2D space shooter, basically just for practice. I'm putting it here for any aspiring programmers to look at the code and learn from it if they want. The source code download link will be in the description of the video.
